Órgiva isn’t exactly bursting with statues and art but it does have its very own ceramic mural. It’s in the main square – home to the tourist office that’s never open and bonkers performance shows that no-one seems to understand (the last one we saw featured three actors in scary old people masks, a pram, a cashpoint made of cardboard and a bomb – oh, and some disco dancing thrown in).
The charming mural – in fact several smaller pieces springing from an impressive ‘map’ of the wider area – shows various villages of Las Alpujarras – some remind us of Paul Klee. The montage below features just a few of them.
It was created in 2002 by ceramic artist Diego Pérez Sánchez. He has since moved to the coast.
We think there may be a monthly art fair in Órgiva and will report back soon. (Click on images to enlarge.)
